"I’ve just added PDF and CHM versions of “Windows Azure Service Bus Developer Guide”, you can get them here.
The HTML browsable version is here.
I have the first delivery of my 2-day course “SOA, Connectivity and Integration using the Windows Azure Service Bus” scheduled for 3-4 May in Stockholm. Feel free to contact me via my blog if you have any questions about the course, or would be interested in an on-site delivery. Details of the course are here." [GD: Post leached in full]
"Windows Azure Service Bus Developer Guide” is a free e-book for developers who are exploring and leveraging the capabilities of the Windows Azure Service Bus and related technologies.
The goal is to create a resource that will evolve and mature in parallel with the Windows Azure Service Bus. The use of an electronic format will allow sections to be added as new technologies are released and improved as the knowledge and experience of using the technologies grows within the developer community.
The first version, published on the 3th October 2011, marks seven years to the day since the first version of “The Blogger’s Guide to BizTalk” was published.
The first section will provide an introduction to the brokered messaging capabilities available in the Windows Azure AppFabric September 2011 release. The next section will go into a lot more depth and explore the brokered messaging feature set. Future sections will cover the Access Control Service, relayed messaging, and cache. Features like the application model and integration services will be covered as they emerge and are released.
The book will always be free to download and available in CHM and PDF format, as well as a web based browsable version. The planned release schedule for the remainder of 2011 is to update the guide with new content monthly, around the start of each month. Updates will be made available on the website and announced through my blog and twitter.
